BBC SportOdion Ighalo’s second-half strike earned 10-man Watford their first Premier League victory of the season at the expense of in-form Swansea.

SKY imageThe Nigeria striker, who signed a new five-year deal last week, volleyed home Troy Deeney’s header across the box from a long goal-kick forward on 59 minutes – his second of the campaign.

TelegraphValon Behrami then made life more difficult for Watford than necessary, sent off for a stamp on the surprisingly anonymous André Ayew, but while Swansea struggled to mount a coherent reply, Watford not only adapted to the loss of a player but found enough extra energy to break away three times to come close to a second goal.

BHappy imageMost of all, this didn’t feel like a smash and grab win that a plucky underdog might hope to snaffle a handful of times a season.  Yes, we dropped deep in the dying minutes but there was no desperation, no lack of composure.  We took on a side that has beaten Manchester United, drawn at Chelsea, gotten everyone cooing.  And beat them.  No knocking that.

The Hornets NestSwansea are an excellent side who have started the season very well. But despite our league position and our failure to score in our last three league games, we had been playing good football and had only lost to Man City previously whilst not conceding any goals at home.
